||On an eighteenth-century map of European culture, Italian musicians would be found almost everywhere. Unlike in earlier ages, they now provided an intrinsic part of the international exchange: no longer exotic birds, but not yet the representatives of a single nation, they helped other Europeans to forget traditional frontiers in music. In this fascinating book, eight specialised music historians investigate several important aspects of the Italian contribution, highlighting local musical practices, the aesthetic of genres, and the larger patterns of musical cultivation and patronage.
